About Paul Roberts
We raised our kids in this beautiful home. Lots of pool parties and gathering. All our kids are adult now, living on their own. We are sharing our joy with you before hopefully one day the house will be full again with our grandchildren.
Paul Roberts purchased this House in 2004
Why Paul Roberts chose Saint Petersburg
Our property's is well located. Most of waterfront vacation properties are by public beaches and crowded areas. We are in a unique residential area close to anything you want to be. You don't need to drive half an hour just to get out of the public beach area. Downtown and Tropican Field (for Rays game) is minutes away and you can enjoy the live downtown St.Petersburg all day and all night.
What makes this House unique
When you are coming in a big group or few families, each one will have their own privacy. You are next to a beautiful park with a nice pier all the way to the middle of water. Skyway bridge is your view. You don't need to go anywhere for fishing. The nature is there. The birds come to you. You can sit in the back yard all day long and never get tired.

Best rental for a family vacation.
The location was perfect for us. We were there for Ecketd Collegr Graduation. The layout was perfect and the pool was an added treat.
Very Nice for a large group
Beautiful kitchen, plenty of towels, awesome dock on the water. Owner is flexible and helpful.
Our pride is satisfaction of our guests. I hope to see you back soon.
The perfect location and get away for our special week
I was skeptical because I had never used HomeAway before and this home seemed too good to be true. We spent a lot of time and effort to put together the perfect plan to celebrate our oldest daughter's Senior Spring Break coupled with our family vacation. We needed a place that would house the 9 of us that included several senior classmates who we brought along to celebrate their Spring Break.
What were the chances that we could keep everyone happy and comfortable for the week. Unbelievably everyone had a fantastic time in large part due to the home amenities, location to everything fun and the space and functionality that the property had to offer.
We decided to get the pool heated due to the previous weeks being chillier than normal and it proved to be a hit throughout the week. It was maintained very well and had pool service come during our stay to keep it clean.
The kitchen was my favorite room equipped with everything that we needed to cook and feed the troops home cooked meals. 3 bathrooms, a shower at poolside ensured that there was never a back up line for showers. All of the beds were comfortable with plenty of linens and towels to handle our crew for the week and we did make use of the washer and dryer as well.
The kids spent alot of time using the pool table, ping pong table, bikes, fishing poles and the large flat screen TV that had technology allowing for late night games.
Several very minor maintenance issues came up and the local contacts were very quick to help correct the problems. They were also very accommodating as we unexpectedly arrived several hours early and they allowed us early access to the home that was very clean and ready for us.
I am no longer skeptical...it was everything that we hoped it would be and we had a phenomenal trip according to everyone, kids and adults alike, primarily because of the property being exactly as advertised.
We thank you very much to take the time and detailing the review. We appreciate you. I hope to have you back soon.
Great family house
We were two families, each with a 3 year old and infant. The House was set up for poolside fun, and floors that could tolerate a spill! The view is terrific, especially nice for watching the sunrise after an early morning wake up. The hosts were also responsive and helpful. We’d definitely come back.
It was a pleasure to host you.
I hope to see you back.
Accommodating house in a nice location.
This house worked well for what we need. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils and pans. There was plenty of space for 9 guys and the pool table kept us busy. It was far from downtown Tampa but other than that it worked perfectly.
Thank you for choosing us.
